About Wakatipu Grill

Our Signature lakeside restaurant, the Wakatipu Grill, at the Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa reflects the best of New Zealand's culinary heritage. The cuisine is inspiring with provocative takes on New Zealand flavors. Vast windows, an open kitchen and rotisserie, along with two circular slate fireplaces lend even more drama to this magnificent space. In the bar, be tempted by yet another captivating perspective of the lake, or an exceptional vintage - the 1000-strong wine cellar has a keen focus on Otago's best winemakers. Linger on the generous terrace where the elements combine to spectacular effect: the lake's indigo depths, the clear air and a decadent outdoor fire pit.

High Tea is served every Sunday 13.00 - 15.00

Hi, as a local I have eaten here several times and never been disappointed until yesterday. Booked the High tea as a treat for myself and my mother and discussed on the phone (in a very apologetic way) that I was gf and df. Believe me, I don't want to have to eat this way but I do and have had many wonderful high teas before at creative places. The guy on the phone said they would accommodate it however on arrival there was no record of my dietaries at all and nothing prepared. Ended up with a couple of nice gf finger sandwiches, a piece of dry cake and what seemed to be fruit from the morning's breakfast buffet. Mum's actual high tea was pretty good but she was upset mine was so poor so wasn't a great experience. Plus I was charged full price after that (very glad I had my locals card). Have always been an advocate for the Wakatipu Grill but this was very disappointing, though credit to the waitress who clearly did her best. I know gf df is difficult and am genuinely embarrassed to have to eat this way, but that was a really poor effort from the Hilton. Beautiful setting though, as always.

Our experience tonight was amazing! The team were very friendly and inviting, the host was awesome and Jennifer (who looked after our table) made us feel very comfortable. She is by far the best server we have had at any restuarant and really made the experience what it was. The food was fabulous, I loved the Chicken (main dish) and my wife loved her Eye Fillet. Our table was superb as we looked out onto the lake, and the atmosphere was very relaxing. 10/10 would come back every time we’re in Queesntown for sure. A big thank you to the team on that night, made our first visit a great experience.

Improvements for the Vintage High Tea - More savoury items on the High Tea menu, and a list of the teas to be included in the High Tea menu with coffee as an option. Perhaps being able to choose individual items from a menu so you can get what you like. More local produce used, if it was used there was no indication of this. The jam was over sweet and a bit sickly. An authentic High Tea would have had clotted cream.
